OK, things actually went pretty well this weekend.

I made the calls, went out and met with the people.

I talked them down from their starting price to a price a little less than 53% of what they were asking originally.

AND I got them to throw in free delivery.

So, I now own my dream car.

I have a Mad Max style Post-Apocalyptic Muppet Movie 1951 Studebaker 4x4.



So, there we go.
Now, I can learn a lot of new things. And it's not like I can really fuck it up while I learn.

:D

Plus, when the Trumpacalypse finally arrives... I will ride eternal, Fozzy & chrome, across the wastelands.

Been a bit since I posted, I guess.
I'll catch you up a bit...
Was really busy with Halloween Stuff until the last minute, but I completed everything which I had realistically hoped to accomplish.

I'll link some pictures rather than post them here, that way if you wish to avoid them, you don't have to click.
Here are pics of my Cthulhu costume:

On this one, I made the robes (from scratch, no pattern), the hat (same as the robes) and the book (it was a bible once upon a time, now it's a nightmarish HP Lovecraft mythos tome). The facial prosthetic was supplied unpainted from mostlydead.com, and I did the makeup / paint / application for it.

Here are the some pictures of the face prosthetic I made for my friend:

This one one on her eye was made from scratch (and applied) by me.  The one on her collarbone was store bought.
She made the fingernails herself and they were amazing and gross and awesome.

I had also helped make a plastic shirt thing for my room mate, but I didn't see a picture of it where you could really get a good look, and I didn't really help too much anyhow haha.


We went downtown Halloween night, right at 6th and Red River, as usual.  Got there a little later than I would have liked, as usual.
During the course of the night, I saw a fight (it had 6 to 8 people in it) which actually crashed into the side of me.  I saw it coming and held on so I didn't get knocked over.  I saw a riot (this one had 10 to 16 people in it) in which 6 cops, pepper spray and 2 paddy wagons were deployed to correct the issue.

Weird, considering all these years I've been going down there and never seeing fights or disturbances at all.
They had the streets blocked off differently, maybe that's why...
None of the people involved were wearing costumes.
The first one involved a girl carrying an infant.  The second one featured a girl who got pepper sprayed by the cops TWICE! once across her whole face, and once right in the eye.  She kept going like a raging beast.  Seriously, that shit barely even slowed her down at all.  And she was five foot nothing and weighed maybe 110 pounds.  She was sort of my hero.

When I was removing my stilts at the end of the night, I got a wicked charlie horse.  It was the same leg that the Fighting Morons crashed into but I don't know if that was the ultimate cause or not.  It was REALLY bad.  Like wanting to scream, roll around and pray to pass out bad.  I had to sit on the sidewalk for a spell and recover.  It ended up being very swollen, and I could not touch it or put any weight on it for 2 days. 

Not really sure what happened there, but it's better now.  I usually heal pretty fast though.
___

After that, my friend got in a car crash which sucks, but I think it's all going to be alright in the long run, and no one was injured.
___

Going to see Paranormal Activity 2 at Alamo Lakecreek tonight at 7:50 if anyone else will be there or whatever.
___

Tomorrow, waking up at the crack of early to road trip to east Texas and go to the Texas Renaissance Festival.  after that, we're driving another 1.5 hours east to camp out in a haunted swamp.  Complete with Native American Burial Grounds and lots of Bigfoot sightings.

Should be an awesome time!

I'm sure there's a million things on my mind, but this is already longer than anyone will read, so I'll post it now.
:P

When I was removing my stilts at the end of the night, I got a wicked charlie horse.  It was the same leg that the Fighting Morons crashed into but I don't know if that was the ultimate cause or not.  It was REALLY bad.  Like wanting to scream, roll around and pray to pass out bad.  I had to sit on the sidewalk for a spell and recover.  It ended up being very swollen, and I could not touch it or put any weight on it for 2 days. 

Not really sure what happened there, but it's better now.  I usually heal pretty fast though.
___

After that, my friend got in a car crash which sucks, but I think it's all going to be alright in the long run, and no one was injured.
___

Going to see Paranormal Activity 2 at Alamo Lakecreek tonight at 7:50 if anyone else will be there or whatever.
___

Tomorrow, waking up at the crack of early to road trip to east Texas and go to the Texas Renaissance Festival.  after that, we're driving another 1.5 hours east to camp out in a haunted swamp.  Complete with Native American Burial Grounds and lots of Bigfoot sightings.

Should be an awesome time!

I'm sure there's a million things on my mind, but this is already longer than anyone will read, so I'll post it now.
:P

3 day weekend.  Good and bad.  Get back to work and have a million things to do.

When not at work, I've been pretty much obsessing over this:
http://twitpic.com/2lnas8

When not actively working on some part of the setup, I've been researching it to make it work or debug or make it work better or whatever.
Would help if I had any idea what I was doing, but I guess this is how I usually learn most things, in over my head, deadline breathing down my neck.  Hopefully it all comes out.  If it does, I'll make a video or something.

Having a serious attack of C.E.R. Syndrome today.  Maybe I can just go take a nap or something.

Questioning the sanity of basically everything in my life right now.  I am weak, stupid, weak-willed and filled with terrible ideas and worse choices.  Go me.

I'm also really sick of all that.

I guess that's it for now, I don't really have time for this, just wanted to confirm that I didn't Take The Retirement Plan yet.

Yet...

Here's this, just because it's been ages:

makin you sick, one seizure at a time.

Crappy phone pic, but it's what you get.
:P

Went to the Sage Francis show Tuesday night.  Great performances, shitty crowd.

Took Wednesday off work because shows like to end at 2am in Austin and I didn't wanna be up at 6am after that.
This one actually started on time, and ended fairly early.  I was home before midnight.  Wanted nothing more than a shower but apparently our water heater was busted.

Guess it's a good thing I was off Wednesday after all!  I waited at home and they came and fixed it.  Much better.

Work is very very strange this week, and I do not really have the time to write too much, so I will leave you early today.

"Not the next year, not the next one, not the one after that.  But ages from here,

Clad in love stained sleeping bags, dying with feet wrapped in endless shirts and pillow cases,

Crumbling with 99 flakes clutched between thumb and palm, dripping yellow cream from twig fingers,
basking our white haired chests on green grassed parks under purple skies.  Laughing over coffee
after bathtubs of coffee have passed through our guts.  Huddled, lonely, under heaped clothes,

Here lay us..."

“What kind of idea are you?  Are you the kind that compromises, does deals, accommodates itself to society, aims to find a niche, to survive; or are you the cursed, bloody-minded ramrod-backed type of damnfool notion that would rather break than sway with the breeze? – the kind that will almost certainly, ninety-nine times out of a hundred, be smashed to bits; but the hundredth time, will change the world?”


There is the matter, of a roast chicken, and a wallet of pounds.

"Au bois il y a un oiseau, son chant vous arrête et vous fait rougir.

Il y a une horloge qui ne sonne pas.

Il y a une fondrière avec un nid de bêtes blanches.

Il y a une cathédrale qui descend et un lac qui monte.

Il y a une petite voiture abandonnée dans le taillis, ou qui descend le sentier en courant, enrubannée.

Il y a une troupe de petits comédiens en costumes, aperçus sur la route à travers la lisère du bois.

Il y a enfin, quand l'on a faim et soif, quelqu'un qui vous chasse."

"Freude trinken alle Wesen
An den Brüsten der Natur;
Alle Guten, alle Bösen
Folgen ihrer Rosenspur.
Küße gab sie uns und Reben,
Einen Freund, geprüft im Tod;
Wollust ward dem Wurm gegeben,
Und der Cherub steht vor Gott."

"Howbeit he will not stretch out his hand to the grave,
though they cry in his destruction.
Did not I weep for him that was in trouble?
was not my soul grieved for the poor?
When I looked for good, then evil came unto me:
and when I waited for light, there came darkness.
My bowels boiled, and rested not:
the days of affliction prevented me.
I went mourning without the sun:
I stood up, and I cried in the congregation.
I am a brother to dragons, and a companion to owls.
My skin is black upon me, and my bones are burned with heat.
My harp also is turned to mourning,
and my organ into the voice of them that weep."
